Thankful Tuesday & GCAAR

Hello all,

"Thankful Tuesday & GCAAR"

Little housekeeping this week... I will be the first to tell you I cringe a bit when I see the GCAAR dues notice come across. It can be a tough pill to swallow this time of year however we must take it. It is the policy of the office that you must be a member in good standing with GCAAR or another area association. If you have not paid by December 31st I am on the hook as the Broker for your dues. So at the end of December if you have not paid I have to send you license in. Don't kill the messenger...

Thankful Tuesday- This is one of my favorite office events of the year so I would love to see a great showing. We all work hard, we all have things in our life to be thankful for and we should all get together to celebrate our successes for the year! Don't worry if you do not bring anything, happy just to see your smiling faces. Click on the link below to sign up.

Enjoy the coffee,

"Set your purse to fattening." 
- George S. Clason ("The Richest Man in Babylon")
In 1926, George Clason introduced a series of pamphlets on thrift and financial success which were widely distributed by banks and insurance companies. He used fables, set in ancient Babylon, to make his points. The most famous of them, "The Richest Man in Babylon," is familiar to millions.
In the story was a very rich man named Arkad. Arkad was generous with all and spent liberally, yet he grew wealthier with each passing year. A group of friends from his youth approached him, asking how he had amassed such wealth while they lived a lifestyle of mere subsistence. His answer was, "If you have not acquired more than a bare existence in the years since we were youths, it is because you have either failed to learn the laws that govern the building of wealth, or else you do not observe them." The pamphlet then goes on to explain the "Seven Cures For a Lean Purse."
So, who are you most like - Arkad . . . or his friends? If you know and practice Arkad's teachings, your primary obligation now is to teach your children, and their children. If you have not been so fortunate as to learn the "laws" and practice them, take heart. It is not too late.
In simple terms, "spend less than you earn" is the critical element that produces wealth. It also requires self-discipline, learned behavior, persistence, wisdom, knowledge, integrity, and more. But, hey, why rewrite the book here when you can just order the paperback online? It's an easy read packed with simple to follow steps to financial independence. If you're tired of the stress, worry, and frustration of never having enough, try giving this book a read!
